Do you think Brandon Sutter called this shot? “Through Martin St. Louis' legs, off both New York Rangers defensemen, nothing but net,” I'm sure is what Sutter was thinking before he let go of the puck in the first period of Game 6 with the Pittsburgh Penguins trailing the Rangers 2-0.

The Rangers had been dominant for much of the first period, so it felt like it was going to take something a bit wacky for the Penguins to get on the board and that's exactly what happened. With the Pens moving the puck around New York's zone, it ended up on Sutter's stick as he got to the half-wall.

That's when Sutter let it go with St. Louis in pursuit. First it went through St. Louis' legs, then off the right arm of defenseman John Moore before it bounced right off of Kevin Klein's leg at the left post and into the net. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist couldn't possibly hope to stop the dreaded double-redirect.

The goal actually completed a rather strong shift from Sutter, who managed to get that whole play that eventually led to his goal started from behind the Rangers' net.

That goal allowed the Penguins to take a one-goal deficit into the intermission despite giving up the early lead and really seemed to even things out as the first 10 minutes of that game, plus a bit more seemed to have the ice tilted the wrong way for Pittsburgh.

It's a pretty remarkable shot, if a lucky one, from Sutter who now has five goals this postseason. That's probably not the prettiest of them, but he'll take it, I'm sure.
